Russian submarine

I suspect that this one is part of a small maritime museum, in the Baltic port Kaliningrad.  Thurs.2.1.14.
I haven't checked to see if it is the same model as the one in a park in Surabaya (Indonesia).

There is also one moored in the River Medway just below Rochester Bridge, she has a list to Stbd and looks to be in a terrible condition.    Geo

Is that the one that used to be located near the Thames barrage many years ago in the '80's?

Yes thats the one she moved to Folkestone for a few years and has now been on the buoy at Rochester for a long time.

Enough of a fixture here that she is even reproduced (complete with list) as a scenery item in "London to Faversham High Speed" in Train Simulator :)

In a vain attempt to get on-topic, the only photo I have taken of her so far was from PS Kingswear Castle back in 2011, and she looked in a bad way then.

While deciding how to light up my Delta Queen, I came across this post and thought that I could share my list of naval museums in the USA, which has many submarines. I loaded three files, one as GPX that can be loaded into your Garmin and a KML file for Google Earth and a CSV file for people who want to mess with it. I have basic photos of them but it would tale a long time to upload.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out.

With only modest searching: the Kaliningrad submarine is part of a maritime museum, and three other adjacent vessels too.
See: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:B-413_(submarine,_1968)
If B413 is a class, it is not the same as the Indonesian one.
